Are You Playing With The Stuff You’re Collecting?

I recently moved into a new apartment and I’m still unpacking boxes.  Mostly boxes of books that need to be unpacked and put onto shelves. The process got me thinking… What if instead of keeping and curating the books you’ve purchased over the years, you had to keep and display the knowledge and lessons and […]
